Art In Unexpected Places


I love going to museums to look at art, it really recharges my creative batteries. I love being surrounded by color.... to see other people's perspectives and interpretations on things. A couple weeks ago when I was traveling to see family, I was happy to see an art exhibit right in the airport terminal! Granted it is a very tiny airport, but it was still fun to wander around it and be relax before I got on a plane. My favorite pieces were works of Van Gogh painted on paint chips with the same title.... pretty clever and fun :)
See more of Todd Johnson's paint chip paintings here




Starry Nights by Todd Johnson





Sunflowers II by Todd Johnson





I love paintings of the sky, there are so many color combinations of sunlight and clouds, it's just always calming and relaxing.

"At the Closing of the Day" by Roy McCullough





Another piece I thought was intriguing was "Emotions" by Jacene England, they are ceramic faces full of expression, I really like how different they all are. Clay is such an awesome medium the more I learn about it, the more I see that the possibilities are endless.



Have you experienced art in an unexpected place lately?

I love the paint color cards paired up with flowers... so amazing.

Those ceramic faces are really fun. They remind me of the talking doorknob from Alice in Wonderland!

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
